Summer Treats For the Young at Heart

As the temperature inches closer and closer to 100 degrees the craving for yummy summer treats begins to grow. This year avoid the pitfalls of sugary treats and the hassle of reading every food label in the freezer section and make your own healthified treats! If it is popsicles that you crave learn to make your own - for very little money you can purchase a popsicle mold. Popsicle molds have come a long way over the years, check out all of the inexpensive options over at

Once you have your mold get creative- try using 100% fruit juices, low-fat yogurt, fresh fruit, and honey to make the perfect popsicle. Then the next time you have a craving for a cold treat grab a home made popsicle instead of the sugar and fat loaded store versions.

What other healthy summer treats have you come up with? Please Share!!!


  1. I have used graham crackers and chocolate whipped topping--frozen into sandwiches, that's really good. Also frozen watermelon, canteloupe and bananas are all really good.

  2. Frozen Grapes too
